In case of trouble encountered during the match in progress, a referee may be called
They will naturally need as much admissible evidence as possible to make the good decision (bear in mind that they can't see everything that is happeing to you!)
Please upload your piece of evidence as soon as possible, before your referee comes into your game chat on G4G
Note that any abusive request will be punished
Please respect your opponents and referees, esports have to be gentlemens disciplines. Abiding by the rules means playing in a fair environment, only this will let you show your real skills.
Talking courteously with your opponent(s), even if your game goes wrong, will always make you loose less time and generate less stress.
1.Ensure that your game accounts are up-to-date:
1.1 Your game accounts on the website must be strictly the same as those used ingame otherwise you might get an immediate disqualification, even if you reached the finals.
1.2 If you do not find your opponent or if one has a bad game account, you can refer to a referee who will decide how to proceed
2. Preparation and launch of the game :
2.1 You have 10 minutes to confirm your current attendance and participation in the game by clicking on the button "I'm ready". If you don't do it on time, you will be automatically disqualified.

Remember to check all game settings before playing.
Playing the game with wrong settings means you agree to play with tese settings, even if the rules are not right. If you play that game, it will be considered a valid game and you won't have the ability to ask for a referee if you loose it. If you don't accept wrong settings, please immediately stop the game, ask your opponent to set them correctly, and if needed, ask for a referee

3.2 If a connection problem occurs, you can ask your opponents to change host once (and once only).
3.3 Once the game is started, please use the G4G chat to get in touch with your opponents; Please monitor the game progress on G4G at least every five minutes to avoid running the risk of being disqualified for not replying to the referee or not seeing that your opponent is trying to cheat.

4. Penalties :
4.1 Any behavior considered as bad or harmful to your opponent or to Glory4Gamers member of staff is punishable, from a warning to a permanent ban.
Connection / disconnection
The player on top in the bracket has to host the game and must therefore create and invite his opponent once the match is generated.
If you are unable to join, please try these:
Restart the game
Restart the console
Reboot your router
In case these are not working, the game will unfortunatelly be canceled, and both players will be forfeited
Any disconnexion will lead to a forfeit. (For a Bo3 finale, this only concerns the current game)
In case of a disconnection due to the EA servers, the game will pick up where it stopped, with the same scores as when it crashed
You will therefore play the remaining time,
Please make sure to make a video clip at the end of that time in case your game would be challenged
PS: A disconnection due to EA servers will be taken into account only in case no points were awarded to two players
